Ooh La La... Madame La La*


I've tried a few of Madame La La's products before, which I rly liked, so when these lil beauts turned up on me doorstep recently, I was buzzin'. 

Their Bronzing Ball* is a product I've owned in the past [which I used up as I loved it and its fab coconutty smell] so that was a nice lil top-up. And the fake tan... well, I've wanted to try this stuff since pretty much FOREVER... so it was straight outta the box & smeared all over my body as soon as the [new] postman had gone [Paul the Postman has retired guys, I'm properly devoed ­čśó] so I could try it.

I'm a firm believer that life's better with a tan - and I do own / hoard / bulk buy in a LOT of tanning products. Some I love, some I never end up using again & some of them go straight in the bin after offending me in a manner that could never redeem them. 

I've tanned religiously [and mostly successfully] every week for at least five years; so I do feel somewhat qualified to give my opinion on fake tans. With that in mind, let's launch right into dissecting this Madame La La Tan* to get the tea, shall we?

The fake tan I was sent is in the shade Medium - Dark; which is spot on for my tanning needs. I'm a firm believer in the mottos: 'Go big or go home!' when it comes to bronzing it up and also, of course, YOLO. I don't do things by halves with me tan - I wanna look like I've been backpacking for two weeks in Australia by the time I rinse off the stain in the morning... not just a bit like I sat out in the weak sunshine in Swindon for an hour or two, and am now slightly more freckly than before.

It's a mousse formula [my fave] with an instant colour guide / stain - these sorta products being by far the easiest to apply for a flawless, streak-free finish in my opinion. There's no 'OOOPS - missed a spot' moments with a product you can physically see during application - and this feature also means that you get to sport an instant glow from the get-go; which is nice.

Fragrance wise - it's pretty nice; coconutty, like the other Madame La La bits I've tried. The mousse is fluffy and soft, really easy to work into the skin. I typically apply my fake tan with plazzy gloves - but with this product, I was able to get a really nice finish using a tanning mitt; as it didn't pure soak into the mitt as I buffed it in [which other products with less of a 'fluffy' mousse consistency can do. And which does me head in.] Dis is my all time fav tanning mitt to date - here. The best one I've tried to date, by far; and the one I used with this tanning mousse.

Once I rinsed the stain off in the morning, I was left with the tan you see below. It's natural looking, didn't betray me around the hands or feet, didn't transfer all over my bedding in the same way some of the cheaper tans can and, since this pic was taken last week, it's still going strong; fading gradually and naturally with no weird patchy bits that make you look like you're harbouring a severe skin condition. 

I'm really, really impressed - tanning felt so much quicker and so much less of a chore with this stuff. Which is the one main thing that puts me off doing it more often. At £30 I'm not gonna pretend this tan is cheap; but I'm that impressed with it that I'd say if it's in your budget - go for it hun. I'd buy it again, fo sho. You can buy a bottle at Look Fantastic - who always have offers on, or even at Very; so you can split the payments over time.

The Bronzing Ball I like to use as a shimmery sorta tan highlighter on my collarbones & cheekbones once I'm all bronzed up with a tan [be this from a bottle or natural.] It can also be used as a cream eyeshadow and, my favourite use for it; as a shimmery golden lipgloss too. 

Look Fantastic are once again a great shout if you wanna try this 360 degree bronzing, highlighting and contouring ball - or Very have got our collective backs once again with their instalment payment offers, if you'd prefer to break the £14 payment down a bit [story of my life, huns xox.]
